Butterfly fly, fly away

Butterflies away

I recently purchased a few embossing folders from Darice.  This butterfly one seemed perfect for the challenge at  Fashionable Stamping Challenge this week which is Swirls 
 Fashionable Stamping Challenges

I started with the Tim Holtz paper in what I believe to be Brushed Corderoy, i stamped it with two Stampers Anonymous stamps then embossed it and added his Mettalic Stain and a Faber Castellated Gelato crayon.  The edges were distressed and inked with Distress ink in Brushed Corderoy.  I  I then added the following: G45 a Moment in Time March paper, TH On the Edge Butterfly die, TH Paper tape, TH metal corners, Ranger Pearls and cut out some  butterfly's from Calico Studio papers.  Lastly I felt the sentiment looked kinda plain so I re-stamped it onto some Studio Calico mauve paper and cut and pasted some of the words, I loved how it turned out!


I will be entering this into the following challenges; - swirls - 1-2-3 1 sentiment , 2 design papers,
 3 solid cardstock blessing/ inspirational wording - Challenge #52 - use older Die cuts/punches/cut outs - things that begin with F - flourish
-come fly with me

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Adrienne....your card is so pretty and definitely has that shabby chic feeling! I love the brown/sepia background and how you have accented some of the words from Tim's sentiment. I also really like how you have added those sweet little butterflies. So pretty and they coordinate so well with the papers you've chosen. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
